Stanley Oliver Jones, 100, of Ottawa, Ontario passed away at the Ottawa General Hospital January 28, 2017. Their professional care, compassion and kindness are truly excellent in the palliative field and were a great comfort to himself and his family. Born in Cardiff, Wales to Emlyn and Violet (Oliver) Jones, he and his wife, May Joyce Jones, became Canadian citizens in 1957.

He taught geography, latin (“aquila non capit muscas” he once offered as words of wisdom to his son, “an eagle does not catch flies”) and, his greatest passion, was teaching computer science. He enjoyed genealogy, playing chess, watching comedies on TV, skiing, cycling, swimming, steam and model trains, whale watching and, most of all, his family. A particular love was his grandchildren, Trevor, Byron and Melanie from his son Russell and, his wife, Julia Sandquist. He liked to say that: “children are the investment and grandchildren are the dividends”.
He is also survived by his son Peter of Montreal, sister Dorothy Reynolds of Cardiff, Wales, his nephews, Oliver Reynolds, Blake Reynolds and his wife Linda (Robson), their children, Mark and Helen, Mark’s children Freddie and Beatrix, Helen’s children Ellie, Joshua and Noah. Stan’s niece, Juliet Reynolds in Cardiff, her children Tabitha and Emma, Tabitha’s child Reuben and Emma’s child Leon as well as in-laws Betty, Stuart, Vanessa and Kirk, now in Australia and in-laws across Canada and Europe.
